We Are Santa Ana features a unique artistic medium compared to the other artwork in this tour: instead of the traditional paint and brushes, it was created with photography and digital editing. The utility box was artistically designed by Federico Medina (@stoopdown), a Santa Ana native photographer who was trained in graphic design. It features photographs of various Latino and white citizens of Santa Ana. The artwork promotes a message of unity after a violent attack that took the life of 23-year-old Kim Pham. The attack took place on the corner of 4th and Broadway, the same corner where the utility box is located. However, Medina does not highlight the tragedy; instead, the artist used We Are Santa Ana to unite the broken community.
